Spitalfields Tours

Synonymous with its namesake market, Spitalfields is one of the liveliest districts of London’s East End, tucked in-between hip Shoreditch to the north and historic Whitechapel to the south. The best way to explore the area is on foot and the obvious starting point for a walking tour is Spitalfields Market, one of London’s oldest and most famous markets, which takes over Horner Square each day from 10am to 5pm.

Additional highlights of a walking tour include Brick Lane, London’s ‘curry mile’; the lesser-known Petticoat Lane Market; and the striking Victorian architecture of Commercial Street. Spitalfields is also often visited on food tasting tours of East London, street art tours, and Jack the Ripper tours.

Insider's Tip: Spitalfields Market is open daily but the best days to go are Thursday for antiques, Friday for fashion and art, and Saturday for the Style market, which features fashion, homeware, and accessories from local designers.
